Abstract

See full text

A photovoltaic module can be formed with a laminate bonded to frame members. The frame members can extend around the periphery of the laminate. The frame members can include surface features which increase the surface area of the portion of the frame member bonded to the laminate, and thereby improve the bond strength between the frame member and the laminate. Further, the surface features can extend generally longitudinally along the peripheral edges of the laminate, thereby helping to guide a flow of liquid adhesive, during the manufacturing process, along longitudinal direction and thus reduce the amount of adhesive that leaks out onto the laminate during the manufacturing process.
